Tanzania is the largest country in East Africa and includes the islands of Zanzibar, Pemba and Mafia.
Tanzania’s population includes around 120 different African tribal groups. Today, about 90 percent of Tanzanians live in the rural areas and live off what they can grow on the land. In more recent years, however, people have started to migrate from the countryside to developing towns and cities.
